Manufacturer’s Statement of Origin is a specified document certifying the country of origin of the merchandise required by certain foreign countries for tariff purposes, it sometimes requires the signature of the consul of the country to which it is destined.
“You dont OWN your car if you live in the U.S A. you own the RIGHT to posess and drive it you pay for that right each and every year above and beyond the purchase price the MSO you seek is purposely not issued and even if it is you will have to surrender it to the state in which you register the vehicle in essence GIVING UP ownership to the state hardly anybody OWNS theyre PROPERTY or theyre VEHICLES they own the rights to use them and posess them the state reserves the right to revoke this at any time”
I have this from a case in Tennesee. Straight from the horses mouth as it were.
It’s the same in every state. And by the way, all DMVs are listed on Dunn and Bradstreet. I guess that makes them a private company.
Tennessee Department of Revenue Operations Supervisor Denise
Rottero Told Judge Greer how Tennessee’s auto registration proc
The process begins with the “surrender” of the Manufacturer’s
Statement of Origin (MSO) by the auto dealer to the Department of
Revenue in exchange for a Certificate of Title. Asked if a
Manufacturer’s Statement of Origin is proof of ownership, legal title to
the automobile, Ms. Rottero said, “Yes”
“Are you telling me that ownership of an automobile must be
surrendered to the State before it can be registered?” she was asked.
“Surrender title, yes'” Rottero said.
The certificate of title to your automobile is Not title, it’s merely
evidence that title exists. Your car’s legal TITLE is the MSO, which the
dealer surrendered to the State. Ms. Rottero said the MSO is put on
microfilm for permanent keeping, the original is destroyed.
After the trial, spectators expressed shock that their personal
automobiles were actually owned by the state. “No wonder
state law officers stop people for no reason!” said a housewife. “If your
car’s got a Tennessee plate, it’s theirs, and they can do anything they
like to you!” That’s the law, but it’s voluntary. No one but Judge Greer
had dared say that if you don’t surrender your car to the state in
exchange for plates, you go to jail.
This should clear up confusing and misconceptions that people have concerning ownership. If you are insured by a company you don’t own the policy the company does.
The state has the “birth certificate of the automobile”, in law called the alloidial or absolute title. If you finance all you get is the beneficial title. To use the states property you have to abide by their rules. Drivers Liscense, plates, insurance, ect.
